Looking for the Dutch IT Pro Community Connection at Ignite 2017 Orlando? Look no further!

Meet up with the community at Microsoft Ignite 2017

So you love the Dutch; that interesting bunch of people occupying a little piece of mostly reclaimed coastal area in the Northwestern corner of Europe’s mainland. The guys and girls (and everything in between, we don’t judge) who do not shy away from giving you their opinions—their direct, unapologetic, blunt opinions on Microsoft technologies and products..

Great! Duim omhoog
Because there’s four Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs), invited to speak at Ignite 2017 in Orlando Florida:

Yes. I’m also speaking at Microsoft Ignite 2017 in Orlando. Emoticon met brede lach
As a tenfold Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP), double Veeam Vanguard and Microsoft Certified Trainer, I still can’t believe I was selected as a Microsoft Ignite community speaker, as I will present the following session:
